From One Believer To Another

From One Believer To Another

If this is your first time visiting this blog, “Welcome!”

As you read, I pray you’ll not see me as being angry at anyone. Firm at times with some, I’ll agree with that. I know that no matter what a person has gone through, things they’ve said or done, or still doing for that matter, there’s a 50/50 chance of my having sought forgiveness for doing the exact same thing at one time or another. I know the battle is not against flesh and blood my friend.

Throughout this blog you will find me quoting things heard on the radio. You’ll not find the names of those who said these things in the posts. I do document their names, the date, time, and radio station call sign on my copy of the original document. I do not publish these details because our mission should be to expose the false teachings not to personally attack the person.

If you should continue reading my friend, you will find the Anthanasian Creed being exposed for what it is, a false doctrine. The word of God having the final say. My trusting in He who knows hears and sees all things, the God of the [Bible].

The person that’s confessing Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord and the Savior of their life, according to the [Scriptures] mind you, has absolutely nothing to fear. Jesus died on a cross for the sin of the world, and He’s now working on their behalf.

Jesus is not "The Son is God"

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” Apostle Peter, 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 (NKJV)

At a planned get together, if I was to sit across from a follower of the Anthanasian Creed, one believing the only way for a person to be saved is to believe “the Son is God,” there’d be a good chance that individual would  hear “You believe Jesus is [Word] in John 1:1 do you not?” from me.

Having been there and done that, a [very] long time ago, believing the same teachings this “individual” sitting across from me does, there’s a very good chance of me hearing something like, “John 1:1… and the Word was God…this [is] Jesus”   

Knowing [now] the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” has absolutely nothing to do with the teachings of [Biblical] Yeshua, answering questions about John 1:1 isn’t a problem.  The person that loses sight of the word of God enduring forever doesn’t stand a chance of making the [Biblical] Jesus out to be someone He’s [just] not meant to be.

Continuing with my example…

I just heard “John 1:1… and the Word God…this [is] Jesus”.  Here’s my response:

Wait just a minute here, aren’t you the one that’s teaching others “the Son is God” is one of the three Gods not being three Gods, a “Person” of the Anthanasian Creeds “Trinity”?  Why then are you saying the [Biblical] Jesus is “and the Word was God” in John 1:1?  Shouldn’t you be linking the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” to it, instead? 

By linking the “Son is God” to John 1:1, it does not make the [Biblical] Jesus “Word” in John 1:1.  Don’t make that mistake my friend, be careful here, no two things can be further apart from one another than the [Biblical] Jesus and the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God”.  “The Son is God” was birthed well after the last entry of the New Testament, 325-AD to be exact. 

Have you found the words “the Son is God” in the inspired word of God?  How about “Trinity,” what verse of [Scripture] is it found in?  Obviously because [it] and “the Son is God” are [directly] linked to the Anthanasian Creed, you’ll not find either of them in the inspired word of God.  Don’t forget the 325-AD thing my friend.  We can’t overlook the fact that neither of these are [directly] linked to the writers of the Hebrew [Scriptures], the “Old Testament,” or the New Testament.  This means everything you’ve been taught to believe makes Jesus “Word” in John 1:1, is hearsay until proven otherwise.

The [Biblical] Jesus, because I know the word of God endures forever, is the Son of God.  King of kings and Lord of lords.  The Lamb of God.  Born of the Virgin Mary, in the little town of Bethlehem of course.  The one that died on a cross for the sin of the world.  Wasn’t left in a tomb, but on the third day was raised from the dead.

The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.” Apostle Saul (who is also called Paul), 2 Corinthians 11:31 (NKJV)

Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when says “All things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.  1 Corinthians 15:24-28 (NKJV)  

In the end however, the [Biblical] Jesus “the Son Himself” will also be subject to “Him who put all things under Him,” that God may be all in all.  Wouldn’t you agree this is saying the [Biblical] Jesus is also going to be subject to the all-knowing God of the [Bible]?  The one Apostle Saul identified in 2 Corinthians 11:32 as “The God and Father of” the [Biblical] Jesus? 

Did you catch the one “who is blessed forever,” the [Biblical] Jesus’ God and Father, in 2 Corinthians 11:31, knows that Saul is not lying when he said/wrote these things.  Don’t forget, Saul was led by the Spirit of God as he wrote what we know of today as 1 Corinthians 15:24-28 and 2 Corinthians 11:32.

John 1:1 isn’t the issue here my friend, its fine just the way it is. The Apostle John gives no reason to believe the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” is linked to the [Biblical] Jesus in his writings.

Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.” John 7:16 (NKJV)

He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” John 14:24 (NKJV)

We know the [word] Jesus spoke, the [doctrine] that He preached, wasn’t His to begin with.  You’ll find that in John 7:16 and 14:24.

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not Yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 

In John 7:16 and 14:24, it clearly establishes the one that sent Jesus is the rightful owner of the word Jesus spoke and the doctrine He preached, Jesus’ Father.  We know when Jesus mentions His Father, because of John 20:17, He’s also referring to His God, too.  It’ll be safe to say when Jesus spoke these things found in John 7:16, 14:24 and 20:17, it was before a live audience which means plenty of eye witnesses.  Some of these eyewitnesses, I’m sure, went on to write that which is found in the inspired word of God, today.

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32 

It is clear in Mark 13:32, the [Biblical] Jesus didn’t know, and I quote, “that day and hour”.  What [that] day and hour Mark 13:32 is referring to isn’t the issue here my friend.  The issue is the fact that Jesus doesn’t know it.  You’re saying at that precise moment the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” is “Word was God” in John 1:1.  Do you not see the problem here?  It’s certainly not with the [Biblical] Jesus.  The [Biblical] Jesus admitted to not knowing all things.  The problem is you’re saying “the Son is God” is all-knowing and that [it] is the [Biblical] Jesus.    

You’d be wasting your time if you give me the 100% “God” and 100% “Man” thing at this point, as a means to justify false teachings.  I’ve been down that road.  It won’t work!  I know the Anthanasian Creed is behind those false teachings which explains why the words “Trinity” and “the Son is God” are not found in the inspired word of God. 

The person bringing the Anthanasian Creed into the conversation, looking to justify their system of belief by it, accomplishes only one thing.  They’ll prove, beyond a shadow of doubt, they’ve placed the inspired word of God at the mercy of those teaching a false doctrine.  Make no mistake about it my friend, the last sentence of that creed [clearly] establishes that unless a person “faithfully” believes “the Son is God” they “cannot be saved”. 

Let’s be honest with ourselves here, does anyone [really] believe the Anthanasian Creeds method of salvation will be found in the inspired of word of God?  Man’s misinterpretation of [Scripture] will support it, but don’t link it to the inspired word of God my friends.  As you’ve just read, it won’t stand a chance if you do.

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3 (NKJV)

[Acknowledging] the all-knowing God of the [Bible] is “the only true God,” will be the evidence of a [true] follower of the [Biblical] Jesus.

As a firm believer [in] the [Biblical] Jesus, I know I’m safe saying the Anthanasian Creed has nothing to do with the salvation of my soul.  The fact of the matter is I’m done with it.  I’ve already thrown it in the trash bin.  Knowing the teachings of the [Biblical] Jesus endure forever, exposing the Anthanasian Creed for what it [really] is, the high priest of all false doctrines, will continue to be the only way a person could “link” me to [it].

God bless.

In His Care… Jim
